mccain and jehmu greene a fox news contributed. thanks for joining us. so the senator mentioned executive orders we need to clarify not one of the 23 actions issued by the president is an actual executive order. however, the white house did issue three presidential memoranda. one, improving availability of relevant executive branch records to the national criminal background system, tracing of firearms in criminal investigations and engaging in research on the causes and prevention of gun violence. what is the difference between a presidential memorandum, not much. did a lot of research on this today. executive orders in all but name. the main difference executive order has to be published, a memorandum only if the president determines they have, quote, general applicability and legal effect. that being said, ford, what chance does the president's gun agenda have? >> not very much background checks. he is easy painting house republicans as obstructionists and we're gloss go over a lot of tensions within the democratic controlled senate. you have senators on the democratic side l
example, immigration reform, something where there are signs of hope. we saw this week john mccain, lindsey graham said they would be willing to work with senate democrats and the president to get something done. there's another area that he could possibly succeed where many before him have not. >> how about getting a budget out of the senate, chris? how about that for a start? >> how about introducing a budget, first of all. >> that's what i mean. >> there hasn't been one introduced in ten years. look at the amount of debt run up under this president and it's staggering. if that isn't dealt with, all these other small issues, and i'm sorry to talk about gun control. they're not as big as the deficit. nothing affects us as much as the financial situation this country is under right now. >> all right. >> tell that to everyone who is getting laid off. >> we're going to have to leave it there. chris wilson, kristi setzer, thank you both. >> thank you, john. >>> as we look ahead to the next four years, there could be big changes coming to the supreme court. we'll take a look at what th
. a lot of people feel that would be beneath presidential inaugural speech. john mccain said i've been to seven of these and usually it's all about extending the hand across the aisle. that wasn't in this particular speech. in the "wall street journal" today, they write, we want the president to succeed because we all succeed as a country if that happens, but the second term breaks down to rancor and gridlock, it's very clear, it will be for republicans, i'm in your face. >> brian: what i did enjoy is seeing his family. he's a great family man, does a great job with the girls. to see their excitement. >> steve: it was a beautiful day for america. that's how it works here. >> gretchen: more people turned out than expected. so that was also an interesting emblematic of the election. >> steve: it's now 11 minutes after the top of the hour. don't pass a budget, don't get paid. that's the message that some lawmakers are proposing in order to get things moving in washington. will that make things budge is this we're going to talk about that next. >> brian: look at this. he's wrestling crocod
't say that. there is john mccain who knows something about losing to barack obama, he did it four years ago. but it strikes me -- i guess i was stuck to the degree that this was an unyielding and compromising of an espousal. i basically thought to myself that it was a poetic version of a speech he would make accepting the nomination of the democratic national convention, saying this is what i want and if i get to be elected, now, he has been elected and inaugurated, this is what i intend to do. bret: what you do is you go general. you articulate widely agreeable themes. there's actually some of the little bit more like the state of the union address specific sites of things that he thinks ought to be done. this was somewhere of a typical inaugural address and you may make general reference to programs but it's usually veiled in such a way that you are not accused of sticking your i in your critics >> we talk about how the party should come together. how they should not talk over each other.
